A wonderful new hybrid

Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun'

I came across this little gem at one of my favorite nurseries las month.  Black- Eyed Susan ‘Prairie Sun”  It has the most amazing blooms with a light yellow-green center.  It was in a four inch pot and very small, but here it is a month later and I am delighted by the size of the bright cheery flowers.   It is deer resistant, (so far) but the rabbits do seem to have an appetite for it.  I had to protect it from day one as it got eaten to the ground the first day!

  1. This beauty is still going strong. It started blooming at the end of June and all the original flowers are still fresh and new ones have opened. Have not had to deadhead them yet. Amazing!
